Daniel Burke never at war with eurasia

July 12th, 2020

I was trying to find a couple ad images that I see popping up from Trump’s re-election campaign, “make america great pac” or maybe from Trump’s campaign itself. One is “Trump versus Antifa”, which I take to be a theme with which Trump hopes to gain traction. The more pertinent one here has that slogan “Biden is weak on China”. Which, we see that theme hereabouts.

Meanwhile, wasn’t there once a group called the “Club for Life”, which woulda criticized or opposed such Chinese state policies?

Number Two: A foe has passed on… rip Lester Grinspoon. Nixon didn’t like him, and neither did Larouche.

A “friend” … Or “co-thinker” distances himself and calls Larouche a Freemason and Hapsburg – Rothschild spy for the EU. (He is also a self described victor over larouche – tarpley.) Ironic, as Larouche convinced the multitudes he was against the Hapsburgs— but such is the dealings of a double agent.

Andrew Woods also has a clarification to not use Larouchian explanations on what he wrote.

Number Three: Ron Wieczorek breaks in his take on a matter that is surely a hot topic around the water cooler with South Dakota farmers, Sweden’s closing of the Olof Palme investigation.
(Not too much coverage in the USA, though the Washington Monthly had an article, eliciting broadly speaking the same comment responses I would expect from South Dakota farmers.
Why of any relevance to Larouche: Early supects and persons of interest and the sea of inflammatory rhetoric the cult put out on Palme at the time.
Certain irony in this conspiratorial website praising. (Ignore the misspelling of the name, and common mistake of not placing “former”).

Deanna Wieczorek has suggestions for Trump, none of which appears to interest him. (even as the masses mobilize.)

Y’know… It strikes me that I am not seeing the Larouche movement go to bat for Trump appointments who are criticized for speaking at some Larouche conferences in the past. William Perry Pendley can’t be a cause?
Or are we just dumping 21st Century Science and Technology into the dust heap of history?

Number Four: What do you suppose Queen Elizabeth would have done had it been Lyndon Larouche?
Anyways, the ever controversial and acerbic President what he thinks of the lady. We will find out if it alters their rhetoric.

Number Five: So we see Charles Kirk weigh in on Plato v Aristotle, and twitterers note the Hey!. Larouche did it already. If differences abound.
Debate? Or is it enough they are both on Team Trump?
One bottom line on the Larouchian contribution to this debate. and another. if differently.
(Was this the company he kept?. (Or this?). action figures?. The Office?

Number Six. For anyone interested in election minutiae, a map for countywide 3rd place tallies in the 1988 presidential election. And analysis / guess-work on why Larouche “carried” Iowa.
Statistical pointlessness. (How does this video game work?

Be sure to map out these candidates’ results.

Lame Claim to Fame, a 2004 party at the home of Larouche.
And what do the kids think of Larouche?

Today we find bots randomly spitting out lpac fec report data and people marvelling over said fec data. We do see photos of overpass signs and a gathering of three (or was it four?) somewhere or other, so thete is that.

Number Seven: First thing that popped into some twitterers upon the smashing of the Pike statue: Hey!. Remember? Lyndon Larouche? Huh?.
(To be sure, the two are following seperate historical understandings.). Though, these were the political aims.
And curious: Who suggested the idea to whom?

Interesting to see Matthew Sweet disparage “cancel culture” with reference to Larouche, which — with other allusions to Trump supporters and parts of the gop to the cult, presents a great deal of alienation for the left and right.
(See the somewhat dishonest rejoinder regarding a Matt Taibbi editorial. Granted, Larouche inc took it to probing Angela Davis… And is now prone to the rhetorical bombast “Get their knee off of Larouche’s Neck”. (Classy).

I believe they have the culprits behind the “Next Step” wrong. But maybe the rcp took the name too.

Here’s another new book which apparently plugs the larouche memo generator.

Number Eight: Assessing news sources.

When last we saw Sean Stone in these parts, he had served as a laison to bring first Jeffrey Steinberg and then Lyndon Larouche onto Alex Jones, despite a few disparaging comments between them previously. Now we see Dennis Speed on the Stone podcast, pumping up a statue which Fredrerick Douglas reportedly had private misgivings regarding even as he was beginning to become more reverent to Lincoln as a political aim to goad the Republican Party at the time as of moved away from Reconstruction.

Michael Billington does Iran’s Press TV, happy to play two sides against the middle, probably wouldn’t be happy with Evan Siegal’s request.

Jacques Cheminade does China.

Helga made noise about the Daily Coin running an eleven year video of Lyndon. To which begs the question… What is The Daily Coin?

EIR vs Spiked, regarding apes and primates. Of course, it needs to be pointed out, primates were very much on Larouche’s mind during the Obama administration.

Bards Logic for Blog Talk Radio brings Bob Ingraham to you.

Number Nine: Triggering memories of Boston usedta happens.
lost youth photo.
Is there some sort of plaque.
Airport Memories.

Memories of Temple U. did this tp a larouche table, fondly lol.
What was Noam Chomsky up to in 1976?. (Same thing as instrumental classical musicians, I guess.
How to handle canvassing larouchies.

1986 saw people waving Larouche in circle with line crossed out sign. Well, they were pedfling Soviet propaganda.

Number Ten: Fresh off of recording Christian themed music with Kenny G — because he’s just trolling everyone now — and now… Because he announced a presidential run, Kanye West gets to be called the next Lyndon Larouche.

KW Miller, congressional candidate in Florida. Absent a Beyonce conspiracy thepry no one woulda paid him any mind. Would they?. Is the other stuff enough to get him noticed?.

Scott Adams garnered a small handful of “heh heh just like larouche” comments.

And beyond that it is the old standbys of public figures.

Number Eleven
Land bridge ideas, train routes, etc etc etc handed in college.

what happens after the org corners the market on politico with hitler mustache, like the South Park episode “Simpsons Already Did It”.

“outsider artstrange company

Number Twelve: The thing is, Dennis King or Chip Berlet would agree with the sentence by Alan Osler. Just short of this. (hm), hm,
Actually, the time has come at long last to fact check this cartoon. He brought up Luxemberg favorably when courting the Tea Party in 2009- 2010, so how would it all change in 2045?
In the meantime, it does dawn on me that I too see more RCP material about than Larouchian these days. Wheat-pasted on bridges, mainly.

Good for acid trips?

Number Thirteen. The requisite Senate candidate round-up coverage in the news media, representative most of what will come in the newspapers. In social media… Well, The Daniel Burke Senate campaign impresses and impresses and embracing that Simpsons joke. Still needs work on photoshopping together memes, thoigh.
And any day now, having commuted the Roger Stone sentence, Trump will move to doing whatever it is the larouchies think he should do for Lyndon. (Skip to the last sentence William Jones has here, and… Erm… Not only does Larouche “require no pardon”, bit it is an impossibility.)
If Trump doesn’t “exonerate Larouche”, after taking his step with Stone … Well, I guess Burke will sadly announce he was a Chump for Trump.
Apparently taking a page from Lindsey Graham — who endorsed Ted Cruz’s presidential bid even after saying some horrible comments — Burke has called on Rand Paul to join the Larouche Movement even after Larouche called him a “Nazi” and “Enemy of Civilization”. But maybe Burke is just trying to create political distance from Larouche? AS it were, we will see any day now, Rand Paul join the Larouche Movement… Any Day Now…

Number Fourteen. Larouche versus Chapo Felix, because Larouche ceased watching entertainment with The Man From Uncle, or whatever… And moved onto creating his own realness.
Now waiting for the moment in an ultimate battle and apparently with alliances of conveniences to spare.

Counterpoint.
But… He hobnobbed with spooks.

Raise your hand if you knew that there was a “Larouche Citizens Committee of Mexico, which seems to send out press releases from Leesburg (or is it Germany these days?) with “Open Letter to Lopez Obradar” written above it. It seems to be part of a renewed focus on “Ibera-America”, as we see the org now pumping routine diplomatic comments between Trump and Obradar.

Number Fifteen: The AVP reports Larouche as the source of a popular in leftwing circles notion that Israel originated “Deadly Exchange” on interactions of police tactics with the war versis Palestinians.
Prompting this rejoinder.

Stupid Times

July 11th, 2020

In the distant past, a different decade, I heard a caller to Clyde Lewis make the com!ent along the lines of … “We are horrified by Nazi propaganda dehumanizing Jews as rats, but we watch Cops, and … What is the difference?”. Granted, Mr. Lewis did not state the premise, but he did not deny it and may indeed have mildly affirmed it. I think of this in hearing Clyde Lewis more recently decry the cancellation of the series … No longer Fox, but some network called Paramont…
Watching some old Letterman, with the David Letterman superfan archivist who slices a lot of themed segments together on youtube, so I have all the small commentary he did on the show Cop Rock. He had his mom watch and do a call-in review, which found her rating it negatively and instead opting for the network series “Top Cop”, aired on CBS at the time which spot lighted positive heroic acts of police officers. It strikes me that if it were released today, there may just be an audience… For a moment, at least.

The local alt weekly’s “Ask Mr. Expert” column coveted some Orwellian territory in sliding aside the phrases “abolish the police” to having an entirely different definition of the phrase — and then coming down to the very glib item of sarcasm that we will still have some available for white people “in the unlikely event a serial killer are after you”. As though this were the end all issue of why one needs the police.

As were, local city council politics finds the black city council woman using the phrase “performative allyship” to decry the white city council woman for a no vote on a 13 percent cut in the police burea budget as not being deep enough. That is the left wing term; the right wing term is “virtue signallimg”. The non nonpartisan term is “pandering”. Decry Chloe Eudaly however you must.

Contradictions in silly season

July 1st, 2020

Over the weekend, I noted a few articles collected at yahoo regarding speculation, rumors, sorta inside sources suggesting on one hand, denying on another, that the president — looking at falling standing and not wanting to risk losing — may drop out of the race, and then we go on from there with what would happen if such a circumstance occurred.
Funnily enough, I see elsewhere a renewed attention to comments offered by Joseph Biden and on to elsewhere concerning what would happen should the President lose, and he does not leave office. A bit of a chestnut, some online amusement was once had regarding Bush on that score, with one strange call from a conservative or Republican site stating the online liberals should be giving Bush his due for… Leaving office.

Of course, now that it was brought up… Maybe Trump will drop out, not risking defeat. Naturally he did not four years’ back, but then… He was playing with house money back then with nothing to lose in that there free wheeling manner. Now, we got him saying to Hannity the confession that too many people hate him, so there is a Nixon floating there.

Sports and statues

June 29th, 2020

I read the conservative publication, admittedly one that wad set up to oppose the Iraq War but nonetheless planted its flag on some cultural matters that will at least lend to some protest of the protest — decry the “cancel culture” that lead the Dixie Chicks to drop the first half of the name. I will go ahead and cry out that the group has marched into absurbism –and I guess the culture which prompted this — while mocking the double dip hypocrisy.

Other conservative publication fails to note … Not all statue dumplings are the same. It is not Theodore Roosevelt that the descendents of Roosevelt consented to a removal — it is that particular Theodore Roosevelt. Though I do not know what ought be done on the groveling freemen before Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglas’s political words for a political speech (trying to reproach the Republican Party to live up to some faded ideals) do not exonerate a flawed monument. Most of the rest of the vandalism seems Jacobin jackassey… Yeah, 13th century kings must be… Deposed? The local alt weekly published ten comments left to their internet postings on the lobbing og Jefferson and Washington, with (sigh) eight of ten in favor. The one I find fascinating was “beyond the righteousness of toppling racists” and the politics they are “ugly” “has anyone’s day been brightened” by this ” opposite of art”? Answer: Anecdotally, I have seen classrooms of school children run up and past yelling playing and irreveranrly “we love you, Theodore Roosevelt!”, So… As a matter of fact, yes.

IMG_20200624_133906Ever want to hear from Peter Norman, the Silver medalist here?  Apparently, according to wikipedia, and I suppose all coverage of the historic event he was wearing a badge of support, but I am imagining an alternate universe where whitey isn’t in on it.  So we get the experience where he sees in his peripheral vision the big salute and has to make a split second decision… Hey!  Maybe I should join in!

Oh boy.

I see the ny times features an interview with the gold medalist (I assume the gold medalist, I didn’t do much more than glance at it) from this famous photograph, and he touches base on Colin Kaepernick. Interesting to note an article at yahoo quoting the president who — is essentially right this time around but wrong in details on Kaepernick. It is the emphasis on his playing falling off dramatically and the “sure, a team that can use him should sign him”, apart from the emphasis the political activists will draw him on. THe yahoo article nitpicks the precise details — he did not really play his rookie year, as the president mis-spoke in setting up his rise, and he played with a reasonable qb rating his last year, in limited play — but that may not be what thw president wad referring to. As it were, in the current moment I see comments that such and such a team should sign him to “right an injustice” and wrong, but no one seems to throw one team out there… The team that dropped him in the first place, the 49ers.

Today we are Curt Schilling getting blasted for tweeting about the twist and turn on the noose on a black Nascar driver’s garage, which turns out an innocent mistake.  Nooses are used for all types of uses, after all, not simply a reminder for the ugliest use of them all.  A little bit of moral panic time, find a different way to hang things?… I guess the beef on Schilling is to bring up Jussie Smollett, which I guess applies only in how you define the terms. Both cases did not quite smell right, and my immediate thought was an “85 percent chance” it isn’t what it rorts as. Smollett falls apart as comparison with the “nascar noose” in that we have every reason to believe it is a mistake from the driver, who rightly and wrongly has the issue of racism front and center on his mind. So oddly enough, the shadowing of Confederate flags and the “deplorable” nature of the fan base lended me to suspect a narrative creation, not — as that article linked suggests — why I needed to buy it.

Y’know…

 

Pile drivers

June 21st, 2020

IMG_20200619_111710Keeping up with the Church of Scientology building…

Yep.  Boarded at ground floor at least.

Elsewhere, the Apple Store — and here I note when time comes to pull the things down they will be in a bit more of a pickle than the Microsoft store — having allowed massive build up of memorial and political pestering.

… And the incongruent Free Palestine slogan…

Maybe they have goodwill in the meantime, but when Apple has to dump it all… Will they be accused of racism?

IMG_20200620_130708Worth pointing out… While in the case of George Floyd or Rodney King is “don’t beat the snot out of him” … On Michael Brown or Rayshed Brooks, the question of “If you are the cop in that spot, you do what?” is not so clear. I was trying to pluck the name out… Aaron Campbell… Go back to the coverage of his death in the Willamette Week, and it will open with a sentence along the lines of “no one’s fault”, an editorial line I find difficult they would have now without seeing a pack of manure dumped in their parking lot.

The National Review had a half way sympathetic portrait of Chaz, suggesting the revolutionaries want to ease out as the city wants to commodity it all San Francisco Summer of Love.  Mother Jones valorizes it, and to be sure I would dump it in a book of interesting curiosities of political or spiritual community experiments … Though other chapters would include Malheur and Oneida… Maybe Waco…

IMG_20200620_131601Hard to tell if that one counts as commentary on current events, but it is refreshing from a batch of “pigs suck” material.

So.  Is the statue dumping mania an outgrowth of the 2004 Saddam statue toppling?  Learn the art of war from the war makers.  I do see the comment abouts… It is not the statues dropped that is the problem, but what statues will replace them.  I believe it is necessary that Washington, Jefferson, and Grant get replaced by… Washington, Jefferson, and Grant.  Grant gets a plaque with the favorable quotation from Frederick Douglas.  Jefferson’s Portland statue drop is interesting, the blk community in Portland very much emotionally tied and invested to the high school, so you can’t deny the name of who it was named after.

Woke policing the Woke Police

June 18th, 2020

IMG_20200617_110646Just to be sure, this blocked off street has a bunch of people — not all too many, but very loud — chanting the desire to abolish the police, disband the ppb.  Off to the side, two hardhats (though not with hard hats on) I walk past are mocking the idea.  “Who will protect us  from these jackasses?”. (I wanted to toss in Charles Barkley’s comment — “Who are black people gonna call?  Ghostbusters?” ). Off to another side I overhear “… And if they call me racist, I will just bring out my wife and mixed race son…”

Peering on, I see some in This packing… Not wearing masks … Not flattening that curve.  Though I suppose I do not know what the immigration policies arrested to be here for flowing out and in… They gonna build a wall?

This was, apparently, part of a formation of one of them chazes, autonomous micro-states with their own canned police, before the very same cops snuffed them out.  The result is a bunch of graffiti cursing at Ted Wheeler… “Duck Ted” and “Ted is Dead”.

Meantime…

The cover feature for the latest edition of the alt weekly is a series of essays by selected black queers for intersectionality of “gay pride”.  An abject lesson in that proliferation of gays and queers amongst the provocateur set in “alt” or non alt right territory — having garnered a few basics of bourgeois rights to allow their lives, they state at these cultural confines and following strictly the jargon and run elsewhere.  (Perhaps recognizing the follies of chasing normatives?  Definitely would view the shift from the police enforcing society enforcement of morals in breaking up Stonewall to jumping in their parades for constituency reasons as an advance as opposed to . ..)

I guess, since this is the most number of characters I see, the current politically correct, most inclusive cluster is… Maybe…

LGBTQIA2S+

Oddly enough, the person who drops this one out there slips, and in this same essay throws out

LGBTQ+

momentarily forgetting the whole of Is, As, 2s, and Ss. Which, following logic propagated hereabouts, is cultural erasure, an act of violence against Is, As, 2s, and Ss, and any premature death experienced by them can be placed at the feet of them (singular pronoun), who has not earned their IA2S allyship, when they need to use their LGBTQ privilege for the job of amplifying the voices of what is said by the IA2S community. (More marginalized intwrsections).

Elsewhere, someone’s five is this one:

LGBTQ2S+

So, while voicing opposition to corporate pinkwashing, treating everyone as a market segment, singling out Starbucks, they (plural pronoun) conspicuously leave out the Is.  What do they have against the I communitu?  Have they discovered that they but a lot of coffee at Starbucks?

Another person here rearranges the letters to … I guess prioritize themself… and we have

TLGBQ+

I suppose the logic follows in how the L and G got flipped in the first place — at least part of the reason — emphasize the more disadvantaged letter.  (Another reason appears to me that leadership flipped as AIDs blew out gay men over lesbian women, though I noticed that when I was KBOO a few times the gay man doing the pre-recorded too of the hour announcements uses the outdated ordering.  May have had to go to hr for that offense — who knows?). It is odd that this person skips the 2s As and Is, given she (correct me if you want) is the most radical seeming… At least the most narcisstic, coming across as simultaneously demanding you notice her and her specialness and objecting if you do.  (Some months ago, the Tacoma city council had a day commemorating transgender community or maybe it was transgender artists, bringing some people to speak.  A few angry people came to angrily jab at the city council meeting, their objections boiling down to a “You didn’t invite me of [ super woke trans identity me myself and i online zine], I am outraged by the cruel act of violence and invalidation and you n the cis power structure don’t get to define acceptable teansgenderism”  This person I image would be in that outraged group.)

I guess the older woman whose section sits next to hers can be forgiven, has an excuse for leaving it at LGBTQ (Not even the all encompassing protect your hide “+” ), a dismissal with “OK Boomer”.  Though it is unclear to me if it is her offense, as it comes in the introduction of the interview.  It may be the staff writer who made this faux pas
